Filippo Inzaghi scored his 123rd AC Milan goal to rescue a point in a disappointing 1-1 draw with Catania at the San Siro on Saturday.
After opening their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 win over French side Auxerre in midweek, Milan started without injured Brazilians Alexandre Pato and Robinho.
They fell behind to a 30-metre screamer from Ciro Capuano just before the half-hour mark after the Catania midfielder had collected a clearance from Andrea Pirlo.
Milan levelled just on the stroke of half-time when Ronaldinho set-up 27-year-old Inzaghi to side-foot home from six yards.
It gave the striker his 123rd goal in Milan’s colours, just one behind the club record of 124 held by Dutchman Marco van Basten.
The result put Milan into fourth place, two points behind leaders Chievo.
Fiorentina lost for the second successive time when they were beaten 2-1 at home by Lazio, a defeat which sent them to 17th place in Serie A.
Fiorentina could even find themselves rock-bottom if AS Roma, Bologna and Udinese secure points this weekend.
The match started well for Fiorentina when 19-year-old Adem Ljalic opened the scoring with a 19th-minute penalty.
But Lazio levelled through Argentine Cristian Ledesma in the 32nd minute before Czech international Libor Kozak scored the winner after 67 minutes.
